Our group dined here after officiating a Tuesday evening volleyball match at St. John Arena. When we arrived shortly before 11:00pm, the place was dead and empty, and the waitstaff seemed to be rather annoyed by our arrival. What followed was a typical experience from...More

Food was pretty good the seating and service was just real poor. Everyone was nice enough just not good at their(hostess and servers ) jobs.

We went here as it was close to The James Hospital. Prompt service. The nacho deluxe is a good choice as well as the New York strip. Wait staff was on the ball and made the visit enjoyable. If in the area again we will...More

Where to start.... Warm fermented iced tea. Items requested left off were on the sandwich. Servers stand at the front of the table and hand off plates and drinks. I don't care for everyone at the table to handle my glass. Food was mediocre. I...More

Went on a Saturday afternoon, weekend of the Arnold. Figured it would be busy but we were actually pleased, seated right away at a high top in the bar area. TV's all around to watch your favorite sports. Coke products, which is always a plus...More

Went here for lunch. Nobody in the restaurant, so I was expecting great things. Someone came by to take our drink order, only to have another server stop and say "this is my table". Well, I wish that the first person had kept our table....More

While in Columbus we wanted to meet with several friends during the afternoon. Met for apps and drinks. Enjoyed several different kinds of apps that were all good. Service at the bar was a bit slow. Bartender seemed to disappear for long periods of time....More

I am not the manager at the restaurant, but I do believe they offer call ahead seating...but your best bet would be to contact them in advance of your visit.
what is your parking situation?

I'm not sure I understand the question? This Champps is in a shopping center with lots of free parking. On a busy day, you may have to park a little further away (the restaurant is near the theater so it may fill up closer... More

A modest little restaurant where locals meet up to catch the game and where neighbors become friends. We continue to take pride in preparing made-to-order comfort food every day. Private and semi-private rooms available for large parties.
